Every year our tax program has provided low-income community members with free tax preparation services. While tax-filing might not seem as exciting as some of the other services CFLSP provides, it is an essential one for our community. We make sure that individuals and families get the refunds and credits they are eligible for, and ensure that they are not subject to other predatory tax services. Any family with an income of less than $72,000 per year, or individuals with incomes of less than $50,000 per year, who reside in any NYC borough, are eligible for free assistance.
This year, due to the ongoing pandemic we are operating as a drop-off base tax program by appointment only, which can be scheduled using our appointment link: https://booknow.appointment-plus.com/d6sz54qq/
A tax refund might be the largest check a family receives all year – and those sums add up. Last year, Center for Family Life’s tax-filing program yielded $5.7 million in returns. That’s money going directly back into the hands of the people and the community we serve, and we hope to make as big an impact this year.
